About Sao Paulo

São Paulo and Rio couldn’t be any more different. Rio is hot, sexy and chaotic, knew for its sultry beaches and passionate samba. In São Paulo, residents of the seventh largest city in the world are more often than not found working, partly to maintain its distinction as the world's tenth richest city. That money gets a lot of impressive buildings, and visitors will appreciate the 70 shopping malls and dozens of business hotels that fill the Brazilian modernist architectural gems. As the cultural capital of Brazil, São Paulo boasts South America's most impressive collection of nightclubs, museums and theatres. The city is also South America's most gay-friendly; its Gay Pride Parade in October is the largest in the world, been recognized for draw up to 3 million folks. Dining tops most Paulistanos lists of things to do, as São Paulo has the best restaurant selection in the country, ranging from sushi to Brazilian chiropractor (steakhouses). São Paulo has the largest population of Italian descendants outside of Italy (six million), so try the famed pizza partisan.

The Sao Paulo Municipal Theater is a large theatre in São Paulo. It was completed in 1911 and is currently one of the landmarks of São Paulo, known as the “Paris Opera House” in Brazil. Designed by the famous architect Hamos Asvido. The whole building is elegant and noble, and the grand style is similar to that of the Paris Opera. The Baroque architecture itself is also a beautiful piece of art. It is the stage for the cultural performances of São Paulo, and the echo effect is perfect. The interior of the City Opera House was refurbished in 1991 and is elegantly arranged in marble, painting, plaster, mirrors, etc.

While it was constructed from 1903 to 1911, the Municipal Theatre is perhaps best known for having hosted 1922's Week of Modern Art. You can't help but see the architectural influence of the Parisian Opera on the building. You can still watch a production here and appreciate the renovations done in the 1980s. You can join a guided tour of the Municipal Theatre, as one begins every hour.

Trip Moments

Singapore is a country I’ve always liked, not only because the city is very clean, organized and beautiful, not to mention, it is famously known as a “garden city”, but also because hard-working and brave Singaporeans created many global miracles on this little piece of land, making it a logistics and freight center for Asia and the world. Clarke Quay really sees this difference between the past and present. Back then it was just a little port offloading goods, now it has become an entertainment central, bustling with activity.
Surrounded by high rises, Clarke Quay is filled with 2 to 3 story high, South Asian style houses. You really see quite the visual contrast here. In these well decorated 2 and 3 story houses, you will find places offering shopping, wine and dine, and entertainment experiences. Not only are they popular among locals, American, European and Chinese tourists really enjoy these locales too.
Clarke Quay is a place where you can find excellent food all around Singapore. As we all know, Singapore is a very multicultural country where Chinese, Malays, Indians, Indonesians, Americans and Europeans all live. The multicultural community there has directly contributed to the diversity in Singapore’s gourmet landscape. At Clarke Quay, you can find many ethnic gourmet specialties.
It’s a completely different life from night to day. At night, not only are all bars at Clarke Quay completely filled, even roads at the front are filled with tables and people. A lot of them are primarily locals from Singapore, then Americans and Europeans. They would gather in groups to momentarily ignore the stress in their day to day work, have a drink, chit chat and have a good time.
